I Graduated!

Finally after 3 long (not long enough) hard years at the University of Liverpool I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Pharmacology (2:1) on Wednesday. University has probably been the best experience i've had throughout my life and to any of you considering it, i would definitely just say- do it! As long as you don't mind a messy kitchen now and again and mismatched furniture with NOWHERE to take decent blog photos, the social life, barely any responsibilities and the uni life atmosphere and the lifelong friends you make more than make up for it. 

I thought i'd write a few words on what i actually studied as I have never actually shared on my blog the degree i was studying, so if you are not interested, please skip this next paragraph! I studied my degree in Pharmacology, which is for those of you who aren't familiar with it, basically the study of how drugs interact with our biological systems and the research of new drug development. I really don't know and cannot explain how i became interested in this as a degree and when i suddenly 'decided' i wanted to study this course, because all i remember was coming across the degree on the uni website and as i was already doing well in maths, chemistry and biology i thought 'that sounds alright'. I didn't anticipate how much i would love studying the intricate details of how scientists develop drugs and all the research that goes into trying to design cures for crippling diseases. 

Now onto the big wide world and i'm still not completely sure of what i want to do. One of my main priorities is to really put everything into my blog and get it growing again, as the past few months of revision, being seriously ill and my month travelling in thailand have all taken a hit on the blog, however i plan to post so much more and i'm so glad I can come back to it with a complete fresh start now. Anyway i look forward to seeing you in my next post which will be a wrap up of my month of backpacking round Thailand.
